KiwiRail work closely with you to develop rail freight solutions for New Zealand’s changing transport needs
We work closely with our customers to develop solutions to meet New Zealand’s changing transport requirements and keep abreast of international freight trends.
These collaborations enable a sustainable supply chain that links transport modes including rail, road and coastal shipping, improving efficiency and reducing costs.
With New Zealand’s freight market projected to grow by 30% by 2030, rail will play an increasing part in handling the increase and providing greater resilience to the New Zealand transport network.
Our 17 container terminal sites are based throughout New Zealand, from Whangarei to Invercargill.
We support a wide network with our door to door service, or you can deliver your loaded container to us. View opening hours and address details for our CT sites.
